Lessons from today's Netflix selections:

1) Live Nude Girls Unite - Sex workers are exploited, and men are skeezy.

(Yeah, okay, we knew that already.)

2) March of the Penguins - Antarctica sucks. It sucks to be a penguin. The odds of making it from egg to live baby penguin = approaching zero. Also seals are evil.

3) THX-1138 - The future is depressing. Also, color is good.

So now we turn to bad horror.

If anyone out there is on a quest to find one of the worst movies ever made, Maniac Nurses Find Ecstasy just may be it.

Sadomasochistic lesbian nurses murder everything in sight.

IT IS AWESOME(ly bad).

The wifelet and I went to see Where the Wild Things Are last night. Overall, it was good, but I wasn't as impressed as I thought I was going to be...

There were only 2 other people in the theatre besides us, and we were all doing a bit of MST3K with it.

small spoiler but not really if you've read the book )

Being at a movie theater late on a Thursday night in a town that does not have much of a nightlife is an interesting experience. The movie let out at about 10:45, and the theatre was like a ghost town. It was simultaneously a little creepy and a little cool.

Today I really need to get off my ass and do some chores....

Zombieland was good. Woody Harrelson really excels at playing crazy.

Burn After Reading. Why did I just waste an hour and forty-five minutes of my life on this? That was the stupidest, most pointless movie ever.

Bah. What a waste of such a great cast.

I know Seven Pounds got panned by the critics, but it made me cry.

Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter - Pretty lame. Obviously designed to be a B movie, and it shows. There were points that were rather funny, but most of it was ludicrous trying to be funny and failing. I was bored through most of the fight scenes and waiting for them to be over. 2 out of 5 stars.

Matchstick Men - Good story, nice twist. 4 out of 5 stars.

My Dead Girlfriend - Schlocky vampire story that was highly predictable, but yet amusing. 3 out of 5 stars.

Save Me - Gay themed drama about a guy who goes to an Exodus type program and ends up falling in love. Very well done, and had some of my favorite actors in it. 5 out of 5 stars.

The Great Happiness Space - Documentary about the lives of Japanese "host boys" and their clients. Think male geishas. Absolutely fascinating, and also rather sad. One of the most fascinating documentaries I've seen. 5 out of 5 stars.

Prince of Darkness - John Carpenter makes a movie that's a cross between The Exorcist and a zombie flick. I quite liked it, and it was scarier than I expected it to be. 4 out of 5 stars.

Lee and I watched Because I Said So. Definite chick flick, but it was cute and I enjoyed it. 4 out of 5 stars.

Watched Mrs. Brown, a drama about Queen Victoria after Albert's death. Okay but not great and rather slow in places. 3 out of 5 stars.

Attempted to watch One Nation Under God, a documentary about the "ex-gay" movement, but it wouldn't go past 11 minutes. Oh well.

Watched The Education of Shelby Knox, a documentary about a teen girl's efforts to get the Lubbock, TX district to move beyond abstinence only sex education. 5 out of 5 stars.

Finally, watched The Aggressives, about super-stud lesbian women (mostly black) in New York City. 4 out of 5 stars.

American Zombie. Mockumentary that is basically the Blair Witch Project of zombie movies. I enjoyed it. 5 out of 5

And busy have I been.

Movie 1 was Grindhouse: Death Proof. Classic Tarantino. A bit slow in the beginning, but has an amazing cast and was an excellent tribute to the "car chase" movies of the 70's. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Movie 2 was Grindhouse: Planet Terror. Let go of all expectations of realism and just enjoy the camp. Mostly a zombie movie, but one of the most ridiculous you'll ever seen. Every cliche ever, but yet it was still highly entertaining. So bad it's great. Also 4 out of 5 stars.

Movie 3 was The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. A remake of the original Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde idea, sent in present day America. This movie was *terrible.* I don't know that I can truly express how truly awful it was. I seriously can't find one redeeming factor to it. There were a few cute girls, but they were bait for Mr. Hyde (who eats his victims in this one). Horrible acting, stupid plot...bleh. 1 out of 5, only because Netflix won't let me give it a zero.

Movie 4 was Emma. No surprises here. This is Jane Austen's tale, with the lovely Gwenyth Paltrow. Cute, with the expected happy ending. 4 out of 5 stars.

And finally, we have Teeth. This is one of my new favorite movies. A girl discovers that she has real-life vagina dentata. I don't want to say too much more less I give the plot away (although it's actually fairly predictable), but I loved this movie! Rather gorey, as you might expect, but seriously awesome. 5 out of 5 stars.

Also watched Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story yesterday. Unsurprisingly, it was predictable, but was good for a few chuckles.

Today, I watched Afterlife. A bit slow-moving, but an interesting exploration with some Buddhist undertones about what might happen after we die.

Lee and I watched Bride and Prejudice. Cute little English/Bollywood reinterpretation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. The obligatory musical numbers, which were fun. Naveen Andrews from Lost played one of the secondary principals. Check it out if you get a chance.

This one was Boy Eats Girl. Irish zombie comedy movie. Gore galore. Yum yum.

Gattaca. Good stuff. Can I have Uma for Christmas?
supremegoddessofall: (Default)
was Dogville. Very long, and very different. I loved it, although it's definitely a difficult movie to love. This is not a happy movie, but I would highly recommend it, if you haven't seen it. Feel free to discuss in the comments.

Also, finished reading The Anubis Gates. Starting on Tori Amos: Piece by Piece.

Foreign stuff today. Water Lilies and La Vie En Rose.

Also, finished reading Seven From the Stars (which was stupid), and started reading The Anubis Gates.

Got on a Netflix instant kick last night. 8 episodes of Logo's Coming Out, Chutney Popcorn (mmmm...lesbified Jill Hennessy!), and Small Town Gay Bar.

Re: Waking Life.

weird. very very weird.

sorry Ross, not sure it was my thing. I dig philosophy, but too disjointed.

also, on the book front, I finished Folly. Think I will do Seven From the Stars next.
